    A 21 yo going on 17 yo. Good balance but lacks complexity and outspoken character. Would benefit from a higher ABV
    • Nose
      86 86
      typical sherried nose: red fruits (raspberries, cherries), some candy and licorice, a not too outspoken wood note, herbal elements (sage and thyme, some clove and nutmeg), also some sulfury and musty notes. Adding water drowns things, unfortunately.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Less diverse than the nose. Dense, with red fruits and dried nuts leading the way with a slightly, not unpleasant wood bitterness. adding water livens things up, but also makes things a bit sharp
    • Finish
      82 82
      rather short, dry and woody. longer after addnig some water with nutoil joining in, making it a slightly sticky.

    I do not like it so much because of the departure
    • Nose
      Mild, slightly austere, very pleasant. Sherry, citrus, apples, pears, honey
    • Taste
      Intensely spicy
    • Finish
      Medium to long finish, lots of old wood, light peat smoke
